Encourage discussion of the texts. See productions of the drama texts and possibly read the texts yourself so that you can have meaningful discussions! Encourage quote learning by allowing posters and displays of key quotes around the house Encourage a high standard of Spelling, Punctuation and Grammar (SPaG) in any writing done at home

Remind your young person about regular homework so that they dont feel overwhelmed How can students revise effectively? Re-reading texts is very important (avoid only watching film adaptations as part of revision it can be a very different plot in a film compared to the book). When re-reading, students should keep a notepad handy to jot down any insights or ideas that occur to them and any further useful quotations. To revise poetry, students are best off attempting practice questions, which can be found online or even generated by the students themselves. They should set time limits in line with the exam and use their notes at first before using clean copies of them poems. Recommended revision resources CGP guides available through school

Letts GCSE revision guides York Notes revision guides BBC Bitesize online SparkNotes online Avoid Wikipedia/Yahoo answers If your young person can get hold of their own copy of the literature texts, that is really helpful they can annotate them and fill them with post it notes! Any questions?
